I saw a picture earlier this year, probably on Reddit and/or Imgur, of two young kids on a carnival ride having the time of their lives. Right behind them were two slightly older kids or teens looking sullen and glued to their phones. The general layout was something like this.
Does anyone remember seeing it, or can you help me find it? [more inside]

I like reading Reddit's /bestof comments and have been following for a while. However, the /bestof page only keeps a month or so of history.
Is there a way to find every comment that's ever been bestof'd?

I have a fairly extensive posting history that I'd prefer to keep secret in a particular subreddit. I foolishly did not create a throwaway username for the subreddit. Is there a way to do that retroactively though? As in, could I create a throwaway username and maybe have the subreddit's mods change the author of those posts from my main username to my throwaway one or something? Alternatively, how could I cache all the posts in an easily hide-able and transfer-able format (i.e. something more like a .txt file and less like a bookmark) and upload them to dropbox and/or email them to myself before deleting them from my reddit profile?

I'm in a new relationship, long distance. We skype almost daily. Often, mid-convo, I can tell his attention is on something else. Turns out he's flipping through Reddit. This makes me feel hurt, b/c he's not listening to me. When I suggest we end the convo and talk the next day, he says, "No, no! I'm done! I'm done!" Then I feel like a nagging mom, policing his behavior. What should I do? [more inside]

Is there a mashup of reddit and metafilter? Err more specifically is there a site out there basically identical to metafilter but with more subcommunities? [more inside]

II am trying to get a handle on web content and which content has, overall, the best stickiness. Sites like YouTube, Tumblr, Flickr are, as near as I can tell, mostly visual. Blog and microblogging sites like Wordpress and Twitter are word based. Quora, Reddit and Metafilter are information sharing communities. Podcasts and music sites like MySpace or Soundcloud are, for the most part, sound focused. And then you have sites like Facebook and Google+ that are trying to combine the best of all of them.

A week or 2 ago, I came across a photo gallery on imgur.com of photos of Brazilian military police using APCs and bulldozers to tear down favela housing in preparation for the World Cup and Olympics. I think I found it via a link from mefi, or possibly reddit. I have searched both sites for it, and done some googling, but I just can not find it. Hope me?

Metafilter and other social media sites are excellent places to learn new things. Yet it's probably true for everyone that most of the world isn't like me and doesn't like the things I like, and I don't have the time to check every topic for interest value. How do you use Metafilter and similar sites to most efficiently find topics/people that interest you? [more inside]

I'm trying to figure out if a server I'm working on can withstand being linked to by very high traffic websites. Can anyone tell me the basic traffic characteristics of, say, a front page link from: Drudge Report, Yahoo! Buzz, Huffington Post, Slashdot, Reddit, or Digg? I'm using ab (ApacheBench) and I'd like to have some idea of how many requests, and at what level of concurrency, I should be trying to make this server capable of pushing out. Thanks! [more inside]

I've become bored of digg, slate and reddit. I'd like some substitutes (but not too close of substitutes that I get quickly bored again). [more inside]
